General My Biking History


Modest Genius !

Brisbane, Australia
I ride a
Suzuki GSX1400
Hmm if you count the CX500 I have in boxes, I have, in my life, owned on 3 bikes. :(

I've riden a lot more than that though.

Originally (around 1990 ish) I bought a NEW Honda CD250u which was slow but looked awesome (Norton-esque). For financial reasons I had that bike for a long time.

I was one of those people who had an extended break from riding (and a wife who wouldn't tolerate it). Then I grew some nads, divorced her and bought my GSX1400. ( possibly not the ideal choice for someone back to biking after a long break, but hey what the hell right?! )

Since then I've not found ANY bikes for which I'd get rid of the 1400. If you're on a good thing, stick to it I say.

Furthermore I don't have the money for additional bikes. It is what it is.

As for the CD250 that was sold back in the day to my sister, and from her to her boyfriend and from him to a subsequent boyfriend (I'm sure that the facebook relationship status "It's complicated" was introduced for her.)

Last I knew the bike was still going as at last year when one of her ex boyfriends (yeah) sold it on. I'd always mentioned I'd like to buy it back just for old times sake (only interested in that specific bike, not any cd250) but it was sold to some sheila I don't know so that's that.
Ah well - would have made a good video series. The then and now comparo. :)
